Seems like every news thread I have to add another five whingers to my ever growing ignore list. However this is currently a SIX step process to add and return to where I was. Please implement a one click process for this?

On Xenforo, the process will be as simple as clicking a username/avatar and clicking Ignore on the resulting pop-up card. See this thread.

… the forum software change that is due to happen soon will hopefully make the process much easier.
The ignore feature is sad and stupid in many ways.
My ignore list is empty, as it should be.
In the XenForo-based test environment I find an approach to ignorance that:
  1. should encourage a timely end to ignorance, wherever an end is deserved
  2. allows streamlined reporting of personally ignored content that appears to break a rule (that may, for example, be offensive to some other person)
– and so on.

Looking back (vBulletin, with some bluntness; too black and white)

A few weeks ago I was properly reminded, by a moderator, that it's insulting to make known an act of ignorance.

Looking ahead (XenForo)

For what it's worth, I reckon that the imminent improvements to the forum will eventually (not immediately) foster an environment that's friendlier
– friendlier through more mutual respect
– wherever respect is deserved :)
